Check out Oxfam furniture shops if there is one nearby, we got 5 of these chairs for £45! Bargain. I think I'm going to get some Annie Sloan chalk paint and paint them an off white colour so our kitchen is not too much pine.
Although I'm currently torn between painting them white and painting them a neutral colour, like Annie Sloan's country grey.
I never have the motivation when I'm working to be crafty so I haven't made anything in while. Got loads of ideas planned though!
